While beauty is definitely subjective, it is still important to make the right beauty decisions as much as possible. From makeup tricks to beauty tools to invest in, these tips will help you to get the most out of your beauty regime.

Make the Most of Online Beauty Tools 

Thanks to the internet, there are so many online beauty tools that are available, free of charge, to help you to make the best beauty decisions possible. From apps that give you the opportunity to try out new makeup looks and lipstick shades to online diagnostic tools that will help to pinpoint skin concerns, technology is constantly evolving, so be sure to use this to your advantage whenever possible.

Invest in Quality Brushes 

While you may have already invested in the best foundation, bronzer and eye shadow that money can buy, you will not be able to experience their very best benefits unless you are using the right brushes to apply them. When it comes to choosing brushes, you should make sure that they feel soft and gentle against the surface of your skin, but have enough substance to hold on to the product that you are using it for. There are so many different brushes out there, from powder brushes to contour brushes to liner brushes to blending brushes, and while you may not want to purchase them all, it is well worth investing in the brushes that you are likely to use on a regular basis, as this will give your makeup a much more flawless finish.

Clean Your Brushes Regularly 

Now that you own quality makeup brushes, you need to ensure that you are cleaning them regularly, otherwise they will end up with quite the buildup of makeup and bacteria, spreading this onto your face each time you use the brush. There are many dedicated brush cleaners out there that are easy to use, from cleaning solutions to silicone scrubbers, so pick the one that will work best for you.

Update Your Look At Least Every Two Years 

Once you have found a look that works for you, it is all-too-easy to settle into a bit of a rut, sticking to the same style for years. However, experts recommend that you should not go more than two years without changing your image, and this includes both your hair as well as your makeup. Keeping your look fresh and current will help you to look younger, as well as more modern, so do not be afraid to venture over to makeup counters and beauty stores to see what else is out there.

Beauty can be tricky to master, and everybody needs some help from time to time. Whether this means that you need to spend more time in beauty stores, learning about current trends, or simply download a few go-to apps for when you are feeling confused about a new look, these tips will help to ensure that your beauty regime is nothing but beneficial.

COMBINE SKIN CARE AND MAKE UP TO LOOK YOUNGER

Aging is something that just about everybody dreads, with many investing heavily in ways to help them look years younger than their age. However, with the right combination of skin care techniques and makeup application, you will be able to instantly give your complexion a much more youthful radiance.

 

Moisturizer Before Foundation

If you are in a rush, it can be all-too-tempting to simply slap on some foundation before heading out the door, but doing this without any moisturizer underneath will mean that your skin will have to draw out all of the moisture from your foundation in order to stay hydrated. This will then magnify any wrinkles, dark patches, and any other blemishes you were trying to cover up, making moisturizer before foundation an absolutely essential combination.

 

The Perfect Pout

As the body ages, the lips begin to lose volume and start to thin out, and, with the mouth often being the focal point of the face, this can immediately make you look much older than you really are. Lip care begins with the delicate skin on lips, as this needs to be exfoliated on a regular basis to keep lips smooth and boost circulation. When it comes to the lipstick that you use, it is best choosing one that contains anti-aging ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, which will keep your lips hydrated and plump. In terms of colors, dark shades of lipstick will only make your face appear washed out, but shades that feature a vibrant pop of color can really brighten up the face.

 

A Safe, Healthy Glow

There is no denying the anti-aging appeal that a bronzed healthy glow can have, but soaking up the sun’s rays will only damage your skin. However, there are many ways in which you can fake a bronzed tan, with a gradual self-tanner being one of the most popular, as the color from this builds up slowly, minimizing streaks and looking extremely natural. On your face, a cream blush can really help to lift your complexion, and will blend well over any fine lines you may have.

 

Eye Cream Before Eye Makeup

The eyes change quite significantly with age, with eyelids become much more hooded, and the skin experiencing an onset of wrinkles. This can often make applying eye makeup quite the challenge, but using an eye cream first will make the task much easier. An eye cream will help to plump up the skin around the eyes, while reducing any dark circles or areas of puffiness, meaning that your eye makeup will be able to glide on much easier, and sit naturally on your skin.

 

Everybody has their own go-to anti-aging tricks, but using the right combination of skin care and makeup will definitely benefit just about everyone. By understanding how both of these can complement each other, you will be able to protect and enhance your skin, giving it a naturally youthful glow.

ORO GOLD COSMETICS GUIDE TO MUST-HAVE MAKEUP TOOLS

Various makeup brushes laying on white backgroundThe kind of tools you use to apply your makeup are just as important as the makeup itself.  You would not try to create a detailed oil painting with a four inch bristled paintbrush, nor would you use a fine tipped brush to paint a wall.  The same reasoning applies for your makeup applicators.  Specific tools have specific jobs to do.

Often you will find brushes and sponges included with your new beauty products, but these are often of poor quality.  You should stock your makeup bag with the following tools so that your makeup will look flawless and natural every time.  And to make sure that you skin looks flawless with or without makeup, make sure that you apply Oro Gold daily moisturizing cream every day.

The Wedge Sponge

Do not apply liquid foundation to your skin with your fingers.  There are several things that could go wrong with this approach: uneven coverage, added dirt and oil, and using way too much.  Instead of your fingers, use a wedge sponge.  The wedge is a great shape which offers both a large and small surface area to work with.  When applying a liquid foundation, press it into your skin instead of swiping it across for better coverage.

The Eyelash Curler

Even if you do not wear mascara in conjunction with this product, an eyelash curler alone can define your eyes.  Eyelashes can obstruct the natural outline of your eyes, making them seem smaller.  Curling your lashes upwards will make your eyes look larger and your lashes look longer.  Begin the curl close to the lash line using a silicone padded curler.

The Lip Brush

You may be used to rolling on the lipstick straight from the tube, but you will not get the detail you can get by using a lip brush.  This small, sturdy, angled brush will allow you to not only fill in your lips with color, but define their outline as well.

The Smudge Brush

To achieve the perfect smokey eye, you must have a smudge brush.  You’ll recognize this brush by the short, packed bristles.  It’s the perfect tool to use to blend your eye makeup so that you do not have streaks of color above your eye.

The Big Brush

The large powder brush is the last staple of the makeup tool kit.  Use it to apply mineral foundations, pressed or loose powders, bronzers, and highlighters.  Using this brush will give your makeup the polished finish of a professional.

You can use the best makeup available, but without the right makeup tools, you will not fully benefit from their quality.  If you add Oro Gold cosmetics from the Oro Gold store to your daily routine, you will have red carpet ready skin every time you walk out the door.
